  1. Hand-carved Mother of Pearl spoons, knives, forks and plates are the traditional accoutrements used to serve caviar. Any other type of tableware would alter the taste of caviar and distract from its natural flavor. more >>
  1. Remove caviar from the refrigerator 15 minutes before eating.  The lid should be removed only at the last moment.
  1. The ideal presentation is to offer the whole tin on a bed of crushed ice. Allow at least 50 grams (`2oz.) per person.  It should be spooned onto a chilled plate with care taken not to break the grains, which would make it oily. It should be eaten with a fork.
  1. You can accompany caviar with pieces of bread that have been lightly toasted (to preserve softness) and then quickly filmed with butter.  Don't use commercially made toasts or crackers because they are too hard and dry.
  1. A small glass of iced vodka is the ideal companion. It is very important not to spoil your palate with anything but the most pure vodka. It is a matter of personal taste whether you drink champagne with caviar but many think that it is too "sweet" in itself, with too much of its own flavor and that it will distract your palate from the taste of caviar.
  1. Many people swallow caviar whole, but to fully appreciate the flavor you should "burst" the eggs with the tip of your tongue against your palate to release the flavor in your mouth.
  1. Unopened, a container of fresh caviar may be kept in the refrigerator for up to 8 weeks.  Once opened, it is highly perishable and should be eaten right away.
  1. Never keep caviar in a freezer.


  1. Pressed caviar should not be served too cold so that it can spread easily. Take it out of the refrigerator half-an-hour before serving.

  1. Blinis, small round buckwheat crepes, are the perfect accompaniment, but buttered toast is delicious as well.
  1. The blinis are served hot and lightly buttered (the easiest method is to sprinkle them with a teaspoon of melted butter), then covered with a thick layer of pressed caviar over which a spoonful of Creme Fraiche or sour cream is poured.
  1. A container of pressed caviar can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 8 weeks. Once opened, it should be eaten within 4-5 days.
